Olney ISD’s Greg Roach thanks community

I want to express how thankful I am for our entire community, staff, students, and parents for their patience and help as we completed our first week of school. We appreciate everyone’s continuing support as we iron the kinks out of daily operations and remote learning. The district’s intent is to do everything possible to keep our students safe and keep the doors open.

The business of prayer

Many leaders and pastors in the Olney community have been spending extra time praying for individuals and families who have been facing adversities, especially those associated with the Coronavirus. With so much chaos in our personal lives, we sometimes forget about the challenges some of the local businesses may face in their day-to-day operations.
